Community First Federal Credit Union was founded by Alfred and Jean Nienhuis in Lakeview, Michigan on June 27th, 1985.

We opened our second branch in Howard City, Michigan in 2009. Shortly after, our Trufant branch opened in Trufant, Michigan in 2012. In 2018, our fourth branch opened in Morley, Michigan.

The success of Community First Federal Credit Union is driven by the wonderful communities that we serve.
